Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera
My daughter has taken a lot of pictures, they are stored on a Sandisk 1.0Gb SD card.
However when we connect the card to a PC using a USB multi card reader some of the pictures won't display..
To be specific -
There are currently a total of 96 files on the drive. (There are a handful of AVI video clips too).
When listed in chronological order, the first 73 are ok. The next 22 can't be processed. The last one is ok again.
I've just noticed that doing a DIR command, the last file is listed amongst the first 73.. ie as they are listed directly from the FAT index (apologies if not using the right terms here..) we actually get the first 74 files ok then the remainder apparently corrupt or whatever..
This happens on various PCs - all Win XP.
Anyone seen anything like this?
From indications based on your post/description, it would appear that some portion of the Sandisk 1.0Gb SD card may be problematic. Problems like these are often due to the card being nearly full or partial error in the recording media.
It would be best to format the said card using your PC and then use a disk utility such as "Scandisk" or Norton's "Disk Doctor" to check for errors before using again.
There are other programs that formats USB flash drives and memorycards; two are HP Drive Key Boot Utility, Partition Magic.
Since this of course would delete all files stored, you must copy all that can be copied. If you would want to try and retrieve the missing images, you need to use a file recovery program such as GetDataBack or do a Google for freeware versions.
After formatting the card and checking for errors, it would be best to re-format it again this time using the camera itself.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information./
Good luck and kind regards.
